Losing Confidence Causes Us Not Able to Reach Full Potential (Evening)
FOOD FOR THE SOUL
Psalm 8:6 For You have made him a little lower than the angels, And You have crowned him with glory and honor.
For a teenager, who is still so easily influenced by the words and views of others, appearance is something very important. You can imagine when a teenager loses all the hair on his body. Called bald, alien or a series of other names is definitely a very frightening specter. It would the teenager feel ashamed and inferior so that he completely avoids meeting other people even to go to school.
This is what Ps. Obaja Tanto Setiawan experienced in his youth. All the hair on his body had fallen out. As a result, he did not finish school. If he had not experienced total healing, he who is basically shy, surely could not work, serve, even preach and become a servant of God. There would be no Keluarga Allah church and all of us today. There will be multitudes of people who will miss God’s blessings and miracles. Praise God, Ps. Obaja rose up and experienced recovery so that now he mentors us and we may receive God’s messages that he delivers with power.
Insecurity keeps us from stepping out and trapped in stagnation so we can’t reach our full potential and miss the opportunity to experience big breakthroughs in our lives. When feelings of inferiority begin to attack, remember, and speak God’s words, that He has created us almost like God and has crowned us with glory and honor. Receive complete healing from God, receive restoration of our self-image. Start learning to be brave to do something new and bigger. Continue to build a close relationship with God so that we get divine confidence to welcome the fulfillment of God’s promise, Isaiah 60 happens to our lives.
Losing confidence causes us NOT TO REACH FULL POTENTIAL.
1. In your opinion, have you reached your full potential?
2. If not, what’s holding you back?
3. What will you do to increase divine confidence in your life?
“Jesus, thank you for reminding us of the importance of having divine confidence. Help us, Lord, to be able to reach our full potential so that you can use us as a useful instrument for the Kingdom of God. In the name of the Lord Jesus, we pray. Amen.”
